Rama’s Labyrinth

Rama’s Labyrinth

This past week has been exceptionally exciting. Rama’s Labyrinth, the book I’ve been working on for over five years, is now available on Amazon.com (some readers will find it on Amazon.co.uk). The ebook is US$2.99 and the softcover print volume is US$19.99.

Rama’s Labyrinth is a biographical historical novel. We meet Rama in India when she’s a child of eight and follow her through her marriage, widowhood, and travel to England and America. The reader is with Rama when she establishes a school for child widows, converts to evangelical Christianity, and builds a community for famine victims near Pune, India. It’s an amazingly captivating journey.
